As I mentioned in my last post, I managed to bag some good ol' bargains this weekend and, well,
I couldn't help but being a smug ass boaster it seemed rude not to share.
If you read yesterday's post, you'll already have met this little guy. I kind of want to name him. I like naming things - my car, a little half dead mouse we once found in our house and inanimate animal shaped things.
|Ring £2.10 in Accessorize sale.|
The following superb piece of bejazzlement cost a relative fortune, in comparison - £2.40 (a whole 30p extra), also in the Accessorize sale. But, ain't it blinging in as understated a way as a ring this size can be? My right ring fingers feels positively regal in it today...
And finally, (for Accessorize at least), this little set of three rings was also £2.40 in the sale. That's only 80p per ring - bargain! That's the same price as pudding minus custard in my work canteen. Pretty fingers, money saved and thinner (for lack of comparative pudding) - these rings truly are incredible. My only worry is that they might end up falling off my bony fingers...
And finally (but really finally this time), I got this set of drawers. Now, forgive me while I go all domestic on you for a mo' but I love these. They have a broken handle and they're a wee bit shabby but they're proper old school and a lovely dark wood. I opened the top drawer (see bottom) and found a British Safety mark inside from 1960, as well as the brand name Austinsuite. It turns out they were a well known furniture manufacturer in the 50s and 60s. Having had a wee scout about, it seems you can still get bits and pieces of their stuff here and there. Some for a song on Gumtree and some, restored by antique folk and selling for up to £300 on eBay and vintage/retro sites. Needless to say I was thrilled to get mine for a mere £10 through Gumtree! And it's perfect in my bedroom.
